Pours a dark copper color with a small off-white head. Big citrus hop nose, very impressive, i smelled it from way back. Taste starts a bit sweet and malty with a faint caramel like thing goin on, then is nicely finished off by a good bitterness. Faint grapefruitiness in the aftertaste from all the citrus hops. I was really excited to try this brew and it lived up to all its hype.

Copper color with a slightly off white head. Nose dominated by citrus. Flavors echo the same thing. Lots of big, juicy citrus flavors with a pleasant amount of carbonation and a nice, dry, clean finish. Damn good, and deserves the praise it recieves.

Orange-amber with rapidly fading head. Huge aroma of citrus/hops. Nice hops bitterness with lots of grapefruit. Enough malt to keep it from being unbalanced.

Sampled on tap at Brewtopia ’04. Orange/amber color with a small white head. Strong hop aroma with hints of citrus and rosemary perhaps? Initial taste was slightly malty, then the hops dominate, in a great way. Great beer.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 18, 2004
UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 Pours a nice orange/rustic hazy color, with a small-medium head. Aroma is Hops and citrus, similar to many a palie’. Flavor is overwhelmed by Hops, and is a bit dominating at times. A full flavor and bod’ to it. Ending is all in da hops’!

Beautiful orange color. Nice citrus smells. Strong hops to taste, more than the malt, which goes against the description. Seems lighter than most medium bodied beers. Great summer drink.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2004 Strong hops and citrus smell. Orange in color with little head. Has a strong hops taste that I did not feel was balanced by the malts. Nice and bitter with a dry finish. A fine example of a Pale Ale. A good refreshing brew in the summer heat.

WOW!!!!!! This is what an ale should taste like!!! Although I don’t agree with the commercial description, I think this is alot more of a beer leaning to the hop and not that of of a balanced beer, but I’m not complaining! This beer will treat you well....very well.

Bottle: Poured a bright, lively cloudy orange with a moderate white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma dominated by grapefruit. Flavor sweet citrus, grapefruit, enough malt, nice bitterness. Excellent beer.
